After three years of preparation and hard work, we are finally drilling a well on the property of the Bible Institute to provide water for the Institute and for the Home of Protection.
The well project is being funded by Rotary International through the hard work of Pat Alonzo and many others who have helped raise funds through their local Rotary clubs. This will be a great blessing as we will have access to plenty of good water even during the dry season.
The well was an expensive project because of the depth of the water table here in Diriamba. They reached water at 605 feet and continued drilling until they reached a depth of 850 feet. This depth makes the cost very high.
The well has been drilled and we are just waiting on the casing and the installation of the pump and motor. We will also be putting up a tank on a tower on the side of the road in front of the Bible Institute where people from the surrounding community can come to obtain free water when needed.
